The Struggle to Survive in a World Without Electricity

Jul 21, 2023 | Dr. William Forstchen, Electrical Grid, EMP, Uncategorized

Five Years After, a new book by William R. Forstchen, Ph.D., a military historian and renowned expert on EMP strikes, tells the story of a small town five years after an EMP strike and how they struggle to survive in a world without electricity. William (Bill) joined John to discuss his latest book.

They also covered topics such as the State of California contemplating the idea that its residents will have to accept rolling blackouts in the future because the power grid is already overstressed and not producing enough electricity. Plus, some want to take a gas-fired power plant offline, stressing the system even more.

John and William continued the discussion about the movement towards so-called green energy, which makes us more and more vulnerable. They noted that we’re pumping electricity in 2023 on a system that largely dates back to the 1970s and 1980s.

"I don't consider us a quote-unquote "prepper show." I consider us a show to handle the "what-ifs" of life. And that could be everything from, yes, a global disaster or a simple bike crash, a car accident, or you fall on the ice. I mean, there are all sorts of things that come along that create a crisis, and I want to give people a way to prevent those and or handle them when they come along." - John Rush
